Palo Santo Sticks – Palo Santo wood is a rosy sweet-smelling wood also know as Holy wood. The sticks will smolder for several minutes once lit and blown out. 3 1/2″ – 4″
Palo Santo is used in rituals to cleanse and ward off negative energies (Palo Santo is related to frankincense, myrrh, and copal trees, three other powerful energy cleansers and protectors). The wood is also used to communicate with the divine, heal on the physical and spiritual levels, and improve concentration and mental focus during meditation.
There is nothing quite like Palo Santo. Its unique fragrance is like a mixture of pine resins, citrus, and frankincense, and it clears away negativity, smooths vibrations, and draws in positive feelings better than almost anything else.
Smudging in the summertime provides the additional benefit of warding off mosquitoes in a natural, non-harmful way. Palo santo features volatile oils and aromatic resins that communicate a warning sign to pesky bugs, but without the harsh chemicals of products such as DEET.
